There are Japanese cherry trees all over Yanaka. The Yanaka Cemetery is a particularly famous “sakura” spot. Next to Tenno-ji Temple is Sakura-dori Street. When the cherry blossoms open in spring, the street becomes a flower tunnel and even on workdays many people take a walk here. The street leading from Kanei-ji Temple to Yanaka Cemetery is lined with sakura trees for 100m and inside the cemetery are also many beautiful trees.
